Keiffer, M. R. (2018). Engaging Nursing Students: Integrating Evidence-Based Inquiry, Informatics, and Clinical Practice.SAGE Publishers.I think one of the main issues with addressing the solution to evidenced-based nursing in my facility is resistance. Most of nursing administration are older, changing the culture of “we’ve
always done it this way”, can be a challenge, however, as evidenced based-practice becomes the norm for healthcare, this should be easier to overcome. One other issue to the evidenced-based solution is lack of education. We do not have enough nurses with the knowledge of how to implement evidenced based research. For effective change to take place One person alone is insufficient to change the status quo, which is why having a culture that supports a spirit of inquiry and an evidence-based approach to care is so important.One of the first and most important things that can be done is approach the appropriate persons/stakeholders who can influence change. Doing this builds trust and enables you to learn from their experience and provide valuable input that can also play a role in identifying outcome measures.Similarly, having support from administration from the beginning is a key factor in success. Administration may be able to give valuable information about other projects that have been successfully implemented that used similar implementation techniques and how they worked. Administration also plays a key role in developing an organizational culture that supports EBP.Changing the way we practice is really changing a behavior, but behavior change isn’t easy. It takes persistence, perseverance, and a willingness to be open to new options along the way. You will hit barriers, but you will also learn strategies that will help you to overcome them. Working together, we can ensure an EBP environment that will lead to better outcomes for our patients and ourselves.ReferenceOvercome barriers to applying an evidenced-based process for practice change.
